Game Guarantee Tournaments:
Each team will play two pool games. Teams advancing to bracket play will be based on overall record, head to head (if applicable), runs allowed, runs scored, and run differential (in this order). Teams that did not qualify for the championship bracket will be scheduled for a consolation game on Sunday. The number of teams advancing is determined by the total teams participating. Check the tournament bracket for details.
Seeding is based solely on overall record, head to head (if applicable), runs allowed and runs scored. Winning your pool does not give any sort of seeding priority. A second-place team from a pool of six can be seeded higher than a pool winner from a pool of five or four.
Depending on the format – a wildcard team could advance to the playoffs. Wildcard team(s) could come from any pool. Will be chosen by best overall record, head to head, runs allowed and runs scored.
